Boost your digital marketing and SEO efforts with old school public relations via HARO.
If you’re not familiar with HARO (Help A Reporter Out), then let us give you the Cliff Notes version of this powerful link building and PR strategy.
What is HARO?
HARO is a platform where journalists post requests for quotes and sources for articles that they are working on.
As a website site owner, you qualify as a source. So, as those daily HARO emails roll in, you have multiple opportunities to offer your responses and potentially earn a backlink to your website.
They send out emails three times per day, Monday through Friday. Sometimes there’s only a few requests in the email, other times there are well over 100 requests per email.
Using HARO is 100% free for both journalists and sources.
You can literally do HARO link building on your own for free. Zero costs involved other than your time.
Or, you can hire us to do it for you.

HARO Link Building FAQs
Not sure if our HARO links service is for you? Or if we’re the right agency for you? Let us try to answer some common questions for you.
Does this work with affiliate sites?
Yes, if the site is a high quality site with a good persona or a real person.
How many links will I get per month?
It varies. Sometimes it takes more than a month for a journalist’s article to go live. Sometimes there’s aren’t many requests for your niche. On average, we see 3 to 7 links per month with our clients.
What DA are the links I will get?
It varies. We’ve landed links as high as DA93 and as low as DA12. Some of the requests are listed as “anonymous” so we cannot vet the site quality before submitting a response. On average, the links we secure are DA35+.
Do I get a refund if you don’t secure any links for my site?
No. Our fee is based on an hourly rate and on the basis of 20 hours per month. We do not charge you based on the number of links acquired. What you are paying for is our time spent monitoring HARO emails for you and responding to requests for you.
Why don’t you charge me per-link?
By charging you a flat project fee, you are only paying for labor costs. Our fee is based on the assumption of 20 hours of labor, but we do not charge overage if it spend more time on your project or if we secure all high DA links. In the end, your per-link cost should be lower with us than with an agency that charges you based on number of links and DA of links.
Can I pay you based on number of links you get instead of the project-based flat fee?
No. If you prefer to pay based on number of links or the DA of links acquired, then you should look for another service or agency.
Can I get a discount if I hire you for more than one site?
No. It still requires the same amount of work per-site.
Can I get a discount if I pre-pay for more than one month?
Is there any way to get a discount?
Yes, if you package this service with another service, then we offer a discount.
Am I locked into a contract?
No, we work on a month-to-month basis. It’s up to you if you want us to continue working on your project each month.
How long does it take to land backlinks with HARO?
This depends on the journalist. We’ve had links go live in less than one week of responding. And the longest amount of time it took for a link to appear was 5 months! On average, we see it take 25-35 days before a link goes live.
How long will it take for me to see good results?
Since some journalists take weeks to get your link live, we recommend spending at least three months on HARO link building.
Do you offer refunds?
